You've heard of Romero (I hope). This time, as you may have already learned, the Latin American Catholic martyr is female. And she died not only for injustice, but for ecology. Goes to show that Christian belief in a renewed creation leading to environmental complacency is as much of a non sequitur as the doctrine of the resurrection of the body leading to chronic neglect of one's health.

Sister Dorothy Stang, requiescat in pace.
